Croquetas de Pollo: creamy chicken croquettes, ready to be pan fried until golden brown

  • heat about ½ inch of high temp cooking oil like canola oil, safflower oil, or peanut oil in a wide shallow pan over medium heat until approximately 350F
  • when the oil is hot and the croquetas sizzle when put in the pan, add them to the pan being sure not to overcrowd them, cook until golden brown on one side, then flip them over and cook until golden brown on the other side.
  • remove them from the pan and place on a plate lined with paper towels to soak up the excess oil, season them with a little salt.
